Remembering Mandy Kelly from Worshipful Living

Tuesday, March 21, started like any other day around our house. I got the kids off to school and came home to do some work.  Around 9:30 a member of our Facebook Mastermind Group (a group of about 10 Christian women bloggers that support one another through blogging and life) posted that she'd seen some chatter on Mandy's Facebook profile and wanted to see how we could pray for her.  It wasn't 20 minutes later that we all realized what was going on... Mandy, her husband Scott, and their … {Read More}

When you are infertile, and the one thing you want most in the world - but God isn't giving to you - is a child, the holidays are incredibly difficult. No one seems to want to acknowledge it. I … {Read More}

Prayer: An Open Invitation To Call Home

  We live during unstable times in an unstable world. And that's okay because, as Christians, this world is not our home. Not the place we go for comfort, reassurance or answers. Our home is with Jesus who is preparing a place for us in His Father's house. In My Father's house are many dwelling places; if it were not so, I would have told you; for I go to prepare a place for you.   … {Read More}

Breaking the Image

I'm reading through a chronological study Bible. It's the second time in my life I've undertaken to read the whole Bible. I'm struck by different events and things that aren't talked about much, even sometimes having forgotten those things happened. One such event is in 1 Samuel 5: The Philistines and the Ark. Israel and the Philistines had a fight and the Philistines had captured the Ark of … {Read More}
